SEMEAR wins 3rd place at the international Feed the Future photo contest!
A photograph submitted by Ana Filipa Couvinhas, Communication Officer for the IITA-led Feed the Future Mozambique Improved Seeds for Better Agriculture Project also known in Portuguese as SEMEAR, won the third place in the latest edition of the Feed the Future photo contest.
The winning image shows Teresa Augusto, a baker living in a Mozambican community where SEMEAR is disseminating improved soybean seeds and complementary crop management practices. Although not a farmer, Teresa and the whole community are benefiting from the increased legume production by consuming soybean derivatives. Every day, Teresa supports local food security by selling 500 loaves of soybean bread to the community in general and the maternity health center; thereby helping to feed future generations with healthy food alternatives.
The photo contest was organized by Feed the Future as a way of using pictorial evidence to showcase how development works and how it is helping to shape and transform the lives of beneficiaries.
